On October 29, 2017, please join us in supporting the Ranker family at the first annual Brian Ranker Memorial Walk at Twin Lakes Park located at 219 Twin Lakes Road, Latrobe, PA 15650 in Westmoreland County.
Steph Ranker is sharing her husband’s story to make it possible for others to find help early in their melanoma journey by expanding her annual team at Melanoma International Foundations event. As Steph says: “How I came to support the Safe From the Sun Event and MIF was during the last few months of Brian’s life. I was doing research trying to find all the information I could and came across MIF’s website, unfortunately it was a little too late for us. But I had found a place that I think may have helped us with finding the right information, the right doctors, and others going through the same thing. Maybe we wouldn’t have felt so alone, confused, and frustrated if we had found MIF sooner. “Brian Ranker, started down that road in December of 2005 with a melanoma diagnoses. At that time he did what was available (removal, interferon treatments, etc.) to help rid him of this terrible disease. Fast forward to the year 2013, he is diagnosed with a melanoma brain tumor. He again goes through everything the doctors recommend to try to defeat it. In February 2015, melanoma won and took a wonderful man from this world. ”
Join MIF and the Ranker Family as we honor Brian and raise funds to ensure that no one walks this path alone.
